The methodological reference was oral history of topic lives. Ten half-structured interviews have been conducted with subjects with definitive intestinal ostomy It was used the technique of content analysis, which provided us with three important supporting networks: religious and spiritual beliefs, family and the Ostomy Association. Those networks worked as pillars that minimized the suffering of stomized patients. Health care professionals must value those supporting networks so as to enhance the lives of stomized patients.
